Top Gun 2 Script Gets an Assist from Mission: Impossible - Fallout Director

Top Gun 2 Script Gets an Assist from Mission: Impossible - Fallout Director
It looks like Tom Cruise has brought in one of his favorite collaborators to help polish up the script for Top Gun 2: Maverick. Christopher McQuarrie, who most recently wrote/directed Mission: Impossible - Fallout, has been brought on board to do a little additional script work on the highly-anticipated sequel to the 80s classic that helped make Cruise a star. Since the movie was recently delayed by a full year, it apparently gave them a bit of time to some polishing. What's another year for those who have been waiting to see this since 1986?

During a recent interview, while they didn't touch on the topic too much, Tom Cruise revealed that Christopher McQuarrie has been brought in to work on Top Gun 2: Maverick. This isn't meant to be cause for concern. The main script is done. It appears as though McQuarrie is just going to be adding some touches and doing a punch-up.

Brad Pitt Was Turned Down for Phantasm II and Quickly Forgotten
Brad Pitt, as it turns out, auditioned for the lead in Phantasm II. Michael Baldwin has played Mike Pearson, the hero of the franchise, in four of the five movies, with the exception of 1988's sequel to the original. The role ultimately went to James Le Gros, but as was recently revealed by director Don Coscarelli, Pitt did indeed audition for the part.

Tom Cruise Is Ready to Fly as Maverick in New Top Gun 2 Set Photos
Top Gun 2 began shooting this summer, and while we got a cool teaser when production first kicked off, we haven't really seen too much from set. That all changes today, as we get a few new images featuring star Tom Cruise suited up and ready to fly high as Maverick yet again.

Top Gun 2, which is actually just titled Maverick, is getting ready for a June 26, 2020 release date. That's two whole summers away, so we probably won't get a trailer until sometime in the middle of next year. That doesn't mean we can't get an advanced sneak peek at what to expect via some set images. These weren't leaked, though. They actually come from a very unique place.
